This gallery shows the new BMW 7-Series hybrid, after yesterday having a closer look at the ActiveHybrid X6. Both models will be on display at the 2009 Frankfurt motor show, where BMW will also make announcements about its new environmental brand.
The ActiveHybrid 7-Series is equipped with a single lithium ion battery and has a ZF eight-speed transmission. The petrol engine is a v8 4.4-litre twin turbo with 465 hp, and consumption is said to have improved by about 15 percent on the 750i, as the car cannot run on just its electric motor. CO2 emissions are 219 g/km and 100 km/hr is reached in 4.9 seconds.
